Embed-able Computers are a Thing. —

This either works for you or it doesn’t.

If it works, a copy of Burgertime for DOS is now in your browser, clickable from my entry. If it doesn’t… well, no Burgertime for you. (Unless you visit the page.)

There’s a “share this” link in the new interface for sharing these in-browser emulations in web pages, weblogs and who knows what else.

The world’s getting weirder. Enjoy the ride.

    Works in Wheezy.

    Brilliant. Works perfectly in Firefox 35 with a bunch of ad blockers turned on.

    Are there plans to embed a CPU/machine state and play it from there– like you can set a youtube embed to start at a particular time? Not a simple proposal, but the devs on this project don’t seem to shirk the light stuff.

    …shirk the heavy stuff, that is.

    Works great! The cyan and magenta look just as horrible now as they did back then! (that’s a compliment)

    yes, this is indeed awesome

    Runs in chrome for android on my tablet, but it doesn’t bring up the keyboard when it gets focus, so I can’t do anything with it.

    Very nice! 😎
